Light and shadow


light-and-shadow

 

Sometimes we appear
Because of pride and fear

Sometimes we lie
To have no cry

Sometimes we hide
From our side

Sometimes we play
With mud and clay

Sometimes we cheat
And steal the seed

Sometimes we are loud
On which we are proud

Sometimes we pretend
With masks we were lent

Sometimes we fight
With our mind too tight

Sometimes we’re blind
Convinced of our kind

Sometimes we cannot see
The beauty of a tree

But sometimes we can hear
The voice of the heart
And all is clear
Our conscience, our guard

Multitude in Oneness


 

 

How many truths lie in this world?
As many truths as there are lives and things
Down to every form of demarcation:
Organic and inorganic

And yet these separated truths
Are united in one big truth
Like the single drop
In the Ocean…

Two-sided love


two-sided love

 

Love in duality
Takes, demands

Love in unity, oneness
Gives, unselfishly

Love in duality
Separates, loses

Love in unity, oneness
Is universal, wins

Love in duality
Fires the mind

Love in unity, oneness
Is life, is soul

Love in duality
Is possessive, wordly

Love in unity, oneness
Is free, divine

Love in duality
Is unconsciousness

Love in unity, oneness
Is consciousness

Duality is Maya
Unity, oneness is God

Power seekers and their fools


 

Stupidity alone cannot last
It needs to be accompanied, supported
By mellifluous people
Copycats and fools
To keep stupidity alive

Especially it can be seen
With power seekers
Craving for power to have control
Over people and peoples
Time to open our mouth…

If a blind leads a blind…

Quote: “Love beautifies” – by Sant Kirpal Singh


 

Love beautifies everything
and if we learn to love everyone,
all our imperfections can be washed away,
especially by loving kind words.

Sant Kirpal Singh (Book excerpt from: Spiritual Elexir)

 

We are all humans


 

We are humans
Search for mutual nearness
Grab hands
Touch interests
Merge in groups

We are humans
Shelter of kindred spirits
Build a fortress
Keep together
Set contrary poles

We are humans
Create spaces
Conflicts
Draw boundaries
Form opposites

We are humans
Fear the loss
Have rubbing thoughts
Moving tectonic frames
Prepared defence

We are humans
In search of solutions
Peacefully together
Accept being different
Dismantling barriers

We are humans
Remember – humanity
Open hearts world-wide
Take us by our hands
Merge into unity…

Unity of Man


unity-of-man

 

If we humans face trouble
Merit great suffering
Our humanity awakes
Then we help each other
With open heart
Not asking from where we come
What colour, religion we have
We are then one in distress
Standing together from man to man

Back in our everyday life we fall asleep again
In anonymity, distance, old habits

Foreign people who lay in their arms
Now avoid eye contact

So let us keep this humanity alive
Not just in bad times, but also in good times

Let us be aware of this deep happiness
Of this unique unity – as we are all One
With selfless help any time…

Wishes in the sand


wishes-in-the-sand2

 

Spirit dressed in matter
Dreams awake, ready  to fly
Reality to find
Freedom to search
To be alive

Marbled illusions
Take shape
In the wind of time
Unfolding dusty dreams
Perishing, renewing continously

Spirit woven in the light
Caressing the very moment
Eagle flight in timeless skies
Dissolves in the light
On wishless traces

Power seekers


power-seekers

 

Power seekers want
To control
Dictate and rule over people,
Use all means
Without scruples
To reach their goals

May God bless them
With right understanding
Respect people
Not prison them in fear
With their intrument of power
In their hands

May they see their own mirror image
To understand what they are doing
And stop abusing power
On the shoulders
Of millions of people

Acceptance and respect


Planets-of-respect

 

Easy it is to critisize
But difficult it is
To think oneself into situations
Not belonging to us

We do not live
With decisions
Another person
Has to take

We do not live
The life of anyone
With his/her background
Instead ignore reasons

So no right we have
To condemn or judge
Or make us only better
With hidden motives?

DidiArtist, 02.03.2014

 

Overcome walls between us


 

We fight for differences
Erupt in hate, blind conflicts
Measure colours of skin
Within tight sights

Fight for good and better
Separate religions
Hide behind names
Dismember unity

Cultures and nations
Meet in fear, have no trust
Prepare for wars
Mankind’s annihilation

When do we see and learn
We are all human beings?

Let us create values of harmony
To live in peace and oneness

On the common level of a Human Being…

Revealing a secret


 

It’s me, Didi, at the age of 18 years – now I am much older…
A friend of mine and I arranged a photo-story: Man and nature…

nightsky2

 

Why I use nightskies in my artwork

Maybe many from my friends and followers have wondered why I almost always use stars as a kind of emblem in my artwork. This time I want to share this “mystery” to you.

When I was 2 years old we were living close to a forest and at that time there were hardly street lamps installed. My mother used a pram and was walking with me as a baby along a smaller path of a close forest which was really dark. I remember – although so young – that someday when my parents again had to walk with me along the edge of a forest, there was such a wonderful star-night which impressed me so much, although I surely did not understand it, only had feelings for this wonderful miracle in the sky, no words of course (I think we think in feelings at this age, a language maybe straight from the heart). Now if I think back I would describe the stars like sparkling diomonds in the dark night. I felt safe in it, like to be in my mother’s arms. I felt something very big in my heart.

This impression has accompanied me my whole life and therefore you will find space and time, stars of living beauty in my artwork, an expression of embracing eternity, infinity…

Thanks for your attention 🙂

All good wishes

Through which glasses do we see the world?


which-glasses

 

If our glasses are pink
All we see is pink

If our glasses are smoke-coloured
The whole world appears as smoke

What kind of glasses we bear
Is a reflection of our condition…

Is a facet of decption, illusion
From the well: clouded gaze

However, if we do not wear glasses
We are beyond good and evil…

Let us rise
Above these worlds…

We are in this world
But not from this world…
